Hi,

MATHEMATICA has a built-in function JordanDecompose[]
that can computes a Jordan normal form of a given matrix,
and the related similarity matrix. Most importantly, it
can obtain symbolic representations of these matrices,
for a matrix given exclusively in terms of symbols
(no concrete numbers, but symbols representing matrix elements).
My question is: what kind of an algorithm is used by this
function, in the symbolic mode of operation?
I would appreciate references to the mathematical literature
describing the algorithm.

Leslaw
